Girls Soccer Playoffs: B-CC Tops Sherwood In PK Shootout

ROCKVILLE, Md. — The Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School girls soccer team was locked in a scoreless tie in its MPSSAA Class 4A semifinal matchup with Sherwood through regulation time and two periods of overtime at Richard Montgomery High School on Saturday, but Denali Minnick’s goal in the sixth round of the penalty kick shootout gave the Barons the win and sent them back to the state championship game.

The Warriors held a 3-2 advantage after four rounds of the shootout and needed either a goal or a stop in round five to win. But Zoe Mesirow scored for B-CC to lead off the fifth round and Barons goalkeeper Angela White made a diving stop on Kelly Flamand’s attempt to send the shootout to round six.

After Sherwood goalkeeper Nikki Steiner couldn’t stop Minnick’s shot leading off the sixth round, Christina Romas sent her attempt wide to give B-CC the victory.

The Barons (13-2), winners of four consecutive state titles, will face South River (17-2) in the 2012 Class 4A State Championship Game.

Field Hockey Playoffs: Glenelg 5, Poolesville 1

Madison Lamanna

Poolesville goalkeeper Madison Lamanna played well on Saturday, but it wasn’t enough against the talented two-time defending champions.

CHESTERTOWN, Md. — The Poolesville High School field hockey team took an early lead but couldn’t hold on against the relentless offense of Glenelg, suffering a 5-1 loss in the MPSSAA Class 2A Championship game at Washington College on Saturday.

Megan Taylor and Dannielle Baker each had a goal and two assists to lead the Gladiators to their third consecutive state title.

“I thought we gave it everything we had,” Poolesville coach Regina Grubb said. “I thought our defense played well.  My goalkeeper [Madison Lamanna], it’s her first year at the varsity level and this is probably the best team that we’ve faced all year. I thought she had the stops, we just couldn’t clear the ball out at times.”
